I have an aunt that is looking for the worth of some collectables but I cant find them any where. She preformed in her band at the Westcot unavailing party and has some pennants, maps, etc. Does anyone know where I can find other? Thanks.
Wish I could help, but not sure were to send you to look for that info. I worked as a temp at the engineering company that was working on the Westcot plans and got to see quite a bit of what they had planned. it was going to be incredible.
1. web search: I found a hit on a complex page for wescot but couldn't find the item for sale. But in searching that site I was surprised at how low prices were for rare paper issued only to the press.
2. attend a convention and search for Disney sellers.
3. search for similar items not related to westcot. example Disneyland pennant.
4. antique roadshow. If it is valuable they will know.
5. local antique show appraisal. If you had brought in the item i would have valued it at less value then items that have the brand Disneyland. First, value for Disneyland is in relationship to the park. If it happens outside the berm, then the value is drastically less. Second, history to visiting the park. I have never heard of Westcot until today. It is not part of my Disneyland memory. So as a collectable it is not strongly desired. Third, all disney products have value limit. Now I know that living here in the Pacific Northwest there is less of a demand of Disney products. I am fortunate ( i like to chat with the buyers as they leave the disney displays) that at two of my major shows, i am next to one booth that has a small array of disney and another just three booths away that is full of Disney and has a few rare Disney items. When the show is over , they still have Disney product. What they do sell is character driven and value priced. Customers are just not walking up and buying every rare Disney item.
6. Value is in relationship to demand. Antique roadshow is always stressing this when reviewing items. I can own the only "Welcome to Pixieland" sign. But only three people in Oregon care.
